Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's rumor rundown, it's "decision day" for William Nylander and, really, his decision comes down to two viable options. Meanwhile, another NHL star who will need a new contract at the end of this season hasn't really begun thinking about a new deal with his new team. There are questions surrounding the goaltending in Pittsburgh and the Los Angeles Kings may be on the verge of making big moves. Nylander to Sign or Sit Bob McKenzie of TSN said via a series of Twitter threads that what's happening with William Nylander today actually boils down to something quite simple. He either signs with the Toronto Maple Leafs or he sits out the rest of the NHL season. McKenzie said, “Not to oversimplify things but it’s pretty elementary: TOR will make its final, best offer to William Nylander today. He’ll either accept it or not.

Toronto Maple Leafs

Most of you will remember the Phil Kessel trade, when the Toronto Maple Leafs moved the star forward to the Pittsburgh Penguins as they began their trip into the land of rebuilding an NHL franchise. But aside from that deal, what other trades do you recall between these two franchises? Heck, do you remember who the Maple Leafs acquired in Kessel deal? Along with answering that question, here’s a look at the five most recent deals made between the Maple Leafs and the Penguins over the last eight years. Life Ain’t Fehr Most recently, the Maple Leafs moved defenceman Frank Corrado after a tumultuous stint with the Leafs to the Penguins in exchange for Eric Fehr, Steven Oleksy and a fourth-round pick in 2017 on Mar. 1, 2017. Corrado played just seven games for the Penguins over parts of two seasons with no points and a minus-two rating before signing with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies as a free agent on Oct. 22, 2018.

Pittsburgh Penguins

After an embarrassing 1-6-1 start in November, the Pittsburgh Penguins have turned things around slightly by finishing the month 3-1-2 and currently sit two points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. After a huge comeback victory against the highly touted Winnipeg Jets, the Penguins fell 6-3 the next night to the Colorado Avalanche despite a Herculean effort from Sidney Crosby. With the Penguins down 3-0, Crosby notched a natural hat trick and put the Penguins in a position to steal at least one point. A third-period goal by Avalanche captain Nathan McKinnon killed the comeback, and the Penguins finished the month with their first regulation loss in six games. https://twitter.com/penguins/status/1068162715540221957 While it was nice to see the Penguins make it a game after being down 3-0, the eventual loss to the Avalanche highlighted the problem that has plagued the Penguins all season – their lack of secondary scoring. If the bottom two...
